Banana Pier opens with a confused and obsessive tirade from Tommy MacHardy in conversation with journalist Ian Ross, who is investigating covert military activities in Ulster involving Brigadier Bell of TAGOil. Ross is determined to reveal the British government's role in Northern Ireland and its infiltration of paramilitary groups but attracts the attention of local detectives DI Bonnie Young and DS Dave Millar on the case of blackmail at TAGOil. The action switches between Scotland and the USSR where former Gordon Highlander, Coulthard, is introduced to small-time criminals Zhdanov and Dolgoruky, recent associates of computer expert and artist Alexei Grigoryev. Coulthard is purchasing 'scrap' hardware from disillusioned Soviet military officers but where are the weapons headed - and what has Coulthard got to do with the UK government? A gripping novel that will appeal to fans of political thrillers, Banana Pier is inspired by some of Alex's favourite authors, including John le Carre, Henning Mankell and James Hogg, whose work The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner Alex's novel has been compared to.
